Information for UK nationals residing in Spain on 31 December 2020 and their families

For those UK nationals and their family members who arrive in Spain after the end of the transitional period, i.e. from 1 January 2021, and who are not beneficiaries of the Withdrawal Agreement, the general migration regime will apply. The agreement on future relations reached between the UK and the EU does not contain provisions concerning the maintenance of the free movement of persons.

This general migration regime is mainly composed of the Organic Law 4/2000, of 11 January, on the rights and freedoms of foreigners in Spain and their social integration and its implementing regulations and by the International Mobility Section of Law 14/2013, of 27 September, on support for entrepreneurs and their internationalization.
